it has been in the past. when barack obama came into office, we know that around the world u.s. relations improved. about 56% say this was the case in 2009 and in 2012. today it is back to 70%. likely --s are more in the credits have not changed it is not just partisanship driving. but there was a partisanship story there. host: what do we gather from all of that the echo -- from all of it? though americans have seen that the u.s. has lost power in the world, that does not mean we cannot do more. one of the focuses is on problems at home. be ok with letting other countries help solve world problems and to not have it all be on the shoulders of the united states. she is a senior researcher at the pew research center, joining us live on the sunday morning. the poll is available online at pew research.org. thank you very much for being with us. are you more positive or more skeptical about our role in the world? is it in fact declining? do you agree or disagree with the findings? give us a phone call. we welcome our viewers and listeners outside the united states. a quick look at some other
people around the world believe those claims. president obama defended this yesterday in the forum on international affairs. he said the bottom line is to prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. the sanction relief will depend on iran's actions going forward. >> if and when iran shows itself not to be abiding by the agreement, not to be negotiated in good faith, we can reverse it and tighten it even further. >> here in israel, the temporary deal has been widely criticized, particularly by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who among other things has called the deal dangerous. but today, this weekend, israeli president shimon peres took a softer stance, saying he would be willing to meet with the new president of iran and said the ultimate goal for everyone is peace. >> it's what we can all hope for. thank you for the latest. >> jamie, at that forum in washington, the president put the chances of success of this deal only at 50/50, but he did say it would give the u.s. and other western leaders greater negotiating power over iran in the long run. >> it's important for u
attention to? >> wolf, i think every world leader, including president obama wants to borrow a little bit from the halo of nelson mandela. but in the case of president obama, knicksed-race president, a man whose fare was from the continent of south africa, i think he's looking to touch base with some of his roots and also be a part of this grand increase in human freedom that nelson mandela helped usher in and which he has talked about. even last night he used that great line from martin luther king about the world bending towards justice. and i think -- nelson mandela helped the world bend in that direction. >> you were showing viewers a lot of video and pictures of you and nelson mandela. you spent an amazing amount of time with this great man. and you know, in recent years since the revolution, since he became the first black president of south africa, since there was de democracy, he almost single handedly kept that place okay. shouldn't we be worried now about the future of south africa now that nelson mandela has moved on? >> wolf, i would love for people to feel like we have learne

obama is calling a victory for diplomacy. >> we cannot rule out peaceful solutions to the world's problems. tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but it's not the right thing for our security. >> but will the deal halt iran's nuclear ambitions? we'll discuss that and the growing confrontation with china with former cia and nsa director, general michael hayden. and our power player of the week this holiday season is not your typical turkey farmer. >> i'm really happiest when i'm engaged in working and thinking and striving. >> all, right now, on fox news sunday. >> and hello again from fox news in washington. the president promised by the end of november, the problems plaguing healthcare.gov would be fixed. and a new administration report released this morning cites, quote, "dramatic progress." but does that mean the web site to enroll in obamacare is fully functional? and what about the larger program? we'll have a fair and balanced debate between two experts in a moment. but, first, we turn to fox news correspondent peter doocy for the latest -- peter.

." she cast the deciding vote for obama care in the first place. it is the brave new world of government incompetence that we will live in. guest: the last line for that is interesting because that is new. the brave new world of government incompetence. that is something the launch of the obamacare website has over republicans. up to it is no longer it is better for you. -- the government is better for you. these guys are incompetent buffoons. it is a attack that could have some resonance. obama had problems with the nsa, spying, leaks, the problem of the health-care website that does not work, he looks like the government is having difficulty operating. in -- and now he says the democratic senators are wrong on governing. that is intriguing to me. i'm a government junkie, so maybe it is less intriguing to other people. host: let me share this. president obama is making a big comeback if only he could get the news out to millions of homeless. guest: every time we have a conversation about on employment numbers, it is the same. it is a question of whether you are in power or out of power.

and not know we are going to lose trillions in tax revenues and become a third world country. we need to renegotiate the trade deals and if obama goes along with the republicans on this transpacific partnership, he is no better than they are. since they will not compromise unless it means helping the rich, the tea party and the house controls things. i think the sequester is the only will realistic way you have of cutting the debt a little bit. we need to renegotiate the trade deals. that is the problem. guest: i have concerns as it relates to the transpacific partnership deal. is not clear the free trade agreements that have been passed into law have resulted in a net benefit for the american people in terms of job creation. host: let me get your thoughts on the front page of "the washington post" this morning on a story that broke overnight. what do you make of this? guest: there is significant nsaern with activity the , week after week, month after month. the judiciary committee has expressed significant interest in this issue. we have to find the right balance between protecting a

that obama's approval rating for handling of for rehn policy so far dropped big time. 56% disapproval rating. what's the impact that this is going to have now on the world stage? >> well, i think on the world stage it's just going to mean that it's going to be more difficult for us to create meaningful relationships with other countries going forward. and it also means that existing relationships are in jeopardy. in 2011, i visited israel and i had the pleasure as a presidential candidate to meet with a deputy prime minister and we had a very nice conversation. one of the most chilling things that i heard him say during that meeting, which was one-on-one, was he did not know, they didn't know whether or not america would be there for them if they were in a crisis. but he also said, they're going to do what they have to do to protect themselves. that is a serious lack of trust of this administration and this president. >> let me ask you really quickly though. do you think america's ke skepticism is like the handling of benghazi or are people just experiencing war fatigue? >> i think it's a co
there's been pr, how in the world do you convince them at this point to sign up? >> absolutely, shannon. i think what this really shows is millenials are a whole lot smarter than president obama thinks they are. they have looked at the choices and, as this poll shows, they are not really interested. he catapulted to his presidency by taking this group of people for granted and as much as i think young people want to see some sort of health care reform, they are not really interested in being forced to pay for something that doesn't really benefit them. >> richard, what does the president do if they decide that they are not signing up? >> i hear you, shannon. the only people taking young millenials for granted is the republican party and i think your poll speaks to that. the poll indicates that people are afraid it's going to get repealed and to appeal the law. the president signed eight of those. >> that is true. the president indicated himself, shannon, nothing is perfect. it requires that everybody who is part of this government, whether you're a democrat or republican, is to come tog
mistakes. the problem with the world, it does not have anything to do with obama. we have taken god out of everything he is doing. the next thing, minimum wage. i talked to a lot of people atut minimum wage at 7:25 -- $7.25 an hour. people say if you raise minimum wage, the influence will go up. everything else is already going up except minimum wage. years taken almost four to get it to seven dollars $.25. i am 61 years old, i am retired, and i have four kids. i have kids working for memo wage. they got student loans to pay back. journal"ll street talking about unemployment benefits in several stories, set to expire on september 28. several democrats are pushing for a vote to extend the benefits. house democrats propose renewing the program for $25 billion but have no way to offset the costs. the senate budget committee chairman were pushing for budget -- president obama using his weekly address to talk about unemployment benefits and their extension. here's what he had to say. [video clip] >> that's more than 8 million jobs in the last 45 months. the unemployment rate fell to its lowe
, the united states, that is not the leadership i expect of my government. the clinton, bush, and obama administration is isolating the united states on this issue. i ask what kind of message is this sending the rest of the world in this lack of he leadership? we ought to sign it. we spend hundreds of millions of dollars removing the land mines and use the leahy funds to help land mine victims around the world. what are we afraid of? we have another law that says we cannot export land mines. let's so the courage. it only take as little bit to go for it and sign the treaty like every ally of ours has done. is that so difficult? let me tell you in conclusion. on november 22nd, remember the great loss this country suffered 50 years ago when kennedy was assassinated. i remember my wife being a young law student and watching the hundreds of thousands of people going down and it was so silent you could hear the drums when the band left and you can hear the lights in the street lights change. and i have been thinking about that a lot in the last few days. we have talked about it and what it fe

of this because president obama was determined to set a higher standard. he sort of glossed over it in his own comments. that was a very significant commitment. on world aids day two years ago, he challenged us to reach 6 million more people with life- saving treatment. to provide 1.5 alien hiv positive pregnant women with treatment for their own health, and to prevent -- to provide men with services for hiv prevention. these targets have pushed us to go further. to be more innovative, to forge new partnerships, including with many in this room. as a result, you all are now reaching more people and more lives are being saved than ever before. now, to meet the challenge of the second decade, we will emphasize this. we have to transform america's role. we made no clearer example of the transformation that we need to realize that south africa, rwanda, and nvidia -- namibia, all you have to do is look at the country health partnerships. these are a model for how they are transitioning to providing direct aid and delivering support for locally run and self-sustaining efforts. this is a vital effort
. >>> it was 72 years ago today japan launched the surprise attack pullingth united states into world war ii. we will go to pearl harbor as we remember that fateful day. >>> may be the key to the success of obama care, but as the signup deadline nears, can president obama urge enough young healthy people to buy in? >> i do remember what it's like being 27 or 28 and aside from the occasional basketball injury, you know, most of the time i kind of felt like i had nothing to worry about. of course, that's what most people think. until they have something to worry about. so ally bank has a raise your re cd that wothat's correct.a rate. cause'm really nervous about getting trapped. why's that? uh, mark? go get help! i have my reasons. look, you don't have to feel trapped with our raise yr rate cd. if our rate on this cd goes up, yours can too. oh that sounds nice. don't feel trapped with the ally raise your rate cd. ally bank. your money needs an ally. plays a key role throughout our lives. one a day men's 50+ is a complete multivitamin designed for men's health concerns as we age. with 7 antioxidant

is beginning. >> okay. thank you. i'm going to move ahead because i think, are you confident that the obama administration and congress can agree on defense cuts that do not impair significantly the ability of the united states to remain the world's dominant superpower? >> no. i, you know, i think that there is an outline of at least a small budget deal to be had when you talk to reasonable members of both parties in congress and there are still some who belong in those, that category, you can come up with some, some mechanisms for increasing revenue and some mechanisms for restraining the, reducing entitlement costs that could at least get us to a small budget deal for the next two to three years, with some relief for, you know, to avoid another round of sequestration and so forth. whether we can see our way through the political paralysis to get there is another question all together. i think that, so i am by nature an optimist. i want to believe rationality will prevail but so far it hasn't. time after time in, from the sequestration, the imposition of the sequestration to the recent shu
